Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see Ensuring idempotency .

--spot-options (structure)

Describes the configuration of Spot Instances in an EC2 Fleet.

AllocationStrategy -> (string)

The strategy that determines how to allocate the target Spot Instance capacity across the Spot Instance pools specified by the EC2 Fleet.

lowest-price - EC2 Fleet launches instances from the Spot Instance pools with the lowest price.

diversified - EC2 Fleet launches instances from all of the Spot Instance pools that you specify.

capacity-optimized (recommended) - EC2 Fleet launches instances from Spot Instance pools with optimal capacity for the number of instances that are launching. To give certain instance types a higher chance of launching first, use capacity-optimized-prioritized . Set a priority for each instance type by using the Priority parameter for LaunchTemplateOverrides . You can assign the same priority to different LaunchTemplateOverrides . EC2 implements the priorities on a best-effort basis, but optimizes for capacity first. capacity-optimized-prioritized is supported only if your fleet uses a launch template. Note that if the On-Demand AllocationStrategy is set to prioritized , the same priority is applied when fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

Default: lowest-price

MaintenanceStrategies -> (structure)

The strategies for managing your Spot Instances that are at an elevated risk of being interrupted.

CapacityRebalance -> (structure)

The strategy to use when Amazon EC2 emits a signal that your Spot Instance is at an elevated risk of being interrupted.

ReplacementStrategy -> (string)

The replacement strategy to use. Only available for fleets of type maintain .

launch - EC2 Fleet launches a replacement Spot Instance when a rebalance notification is emitted for an existing Spot Instance in the fleet. EC2 Fleet does not terminate the instances that receive a rebalance notification. You can terminate the old instances, or you can leave them running. You are charged for all instances while they are running.

launch-before-terminate - EC2 Fleet launches a replacement Spot Instance when a rebalance notification is emitted for an existing Spot Instance in the fleet, and then, after a delay that you specify (in TerminationDelay ), terminates the instances that received a rebalance notification.

TerminationDelay -> (integer)

The amount of time (in seconds) that Amazon EC2 waits before terminating the old Spot Instance after launching a new replacement Spot Instance.

Required when ReplacementStrategy is set to launch-before-terminate .

Not valid when ReplacementStrategy is set to launch .

Valid values: Minimum value of 120 seconds. Maximum value of 7200 seconds.

InstanceInterruptionBehavior -> (string)

The behavior when a Spot Instance is interrupted.

Default: terminate

InstancePoolsToUseCount -> (integer)

The number of Spot pools across which to allocate your target Spot capacity. Supported only when Spot AllocationStrategy is set to lowest-price . EC2 Fleet selects the cheapest Spot pools and evenly allocates your target Spot capacity across the number of Spot pools that you specify.

Note that EC2 Fleet attempts to draw Spot Instances from the number of pools that you specify on a best effort basis. If a pool runs out of Spot capacity before fulfilling your target capacity, EC2 Fleet will continue to fulfill your request by drawing from the next cheapest pool. To ensure that your target capacity is met, you might receive Spot Instances from more than the number of pools that you specified. Similarly, if most of the pools have no Spot capacity, you might receive your full target capacity from fewer than the number of pools that you specified.

SingleInstanceType -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet uses a single instance type to launch all Spot Instances in the fleet.

Supported only for fleets of type instant .

SingleAvailabilityZone -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet launches all Spot Instances into a single Availability Zone.

Supported only for fleets of type instant .

--on-demand-options (structure)

Describes the configuration of On-Demand Instances in an EC2 Fleet.

AllocationStrategy -> (string)

The strategy that determines the order of the launch template overrides to use in fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

lowest-price - EC2 Fleet uses price to determine the order, launching the lowest price first.

prioritized - EC2 Fleet uses the priority that you assigned to each launch template override, launching the highest priority first.

Default: lowest-price

CapacityReservationOptions -> (structure)

The strategy for using unused Capacity Reservations for fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

Supported only for fleets of type instant .

UsageStrategy -> (string)

Indicates whether to use unused Capacity Reservations for fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

If you specify use-capacity-reservations-first , the fleet uses unused Capacity Reservations to fulfill On-Demand capacity up to the target On-Demand capacity. If multiple instance pools have unused Capacity Reservations, the On-Demand allocation strategy (lowest-price or prioritized ) is applied. If the number of unused Capacity Reservations is less than the On-Demand target capacity, the remaining On-Demand target capacity is launched according to the On-Demand allocation strategy (lowest-price or prioritized ).

If you do not specify a value, the fleet fulfils the On-Demand capacity according to the chosen On-Demand allocation strategy.

SingleInstanceType -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet uses a single instance type to launch all On-Demand Instances in the fleet.

Supported only for fleets of type instant .

SingleAvailabilityZone -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet launches all On-Demand Instances into a single Availability Zone.

Supported only for fleets of type instant .

MinTargetCapacity -> (integer)

--context (string)

Reserved.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

Example 1: To create an EC2 Fleet that launches Spot Instances as the default purchasing model

The following create-fleet example creates an EC2 Fleet using the minimum parameters required to launch a fleet: a launch template, target capacity, and default purchasing model. The launch template is identified by its launch template ID and version number. The target capacity for the fleet is 2 instances, and the default purchasing model is spot, which results in the fleet launching 2 Spot Instances.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

aws ec2 create-fleet \
    --cli-input-json file://file_name.json

Contents of file_name.json:

{
    "LaunchTemplateConfigs": [
    {
        "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
        "LaunchTemplateId": "lt-0e8c754449b27161c",
        "Version": "1"
        }
    }
    ],
    "TargetCapacitySpecification": {
        "TotalTargetCapacity": 2,
        "DefaultTargetCapacityType": "spot"
    }
}

Output:

{
    "FleetId": "fleet-12a34b55-67cd-8ef9-ba9b-9208dEXAMPLE"
}

Example 2: To create an EC2 Fleet that launches On-Demand Instances as the default purchasing model

The following create-fleet example creates an EC2 Fleet using the minimum parameters required to launch a fleet: a launch template, target capacity, and default purchasing model. The launch template is identified by its launch template ID and version number. The target capacity for the fleet is 2 instances, and the default purchasing model is on-demand, which results in the fleet launching 2 On-Demand Instances.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

aws ec2 create-fleet \
    --cli-input-json file://file_name.json

Contents of file_name.json:

{
    "LaunchTemplateConfigs": [
    {
        "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
        "LaunchTemplateId": "lt-0e8c754449b27161c",
        "Version": "1"
        }
    }
    ],
    "TargetCapacitySpecification": {
    "TotalTargetCapacity": 2,
    "DefaultTargetCapacityType": "on-demand"
    }
}

Output:

{
    "FleetId": "fleet-12a34b55-67cd-8ef9-ba9b-9208dEXAMPLE"
}

Example 3: To create an EC2 Fleet that launches On-Demand Instances as the primary capacity

The following create-fleet example creates an EC2 Fleet that specifies the total target capacity of 2 instances for the fleet, and a target capacity of 1 On-Demand Instance. The default purchasing model is spot. The fleet launches 1 On-Demand Instance as specified, but needs to launch one more instance to fulfil the total target capacity. The purchasing model for the difference is calculated as TotalTargetCapacity - OnDemandTargetCapacity = DefaultTargetCapacityType, which results in the fleet launching 1 Spot Instance.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

aws ec2 create-fleet \
    --cli-input-json file://file_name.json

Contents of file_name.json:

{
    "LaunchTemplateConfigs": [
    {
        "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
        "LaunchTemplateId": "lt-0e8c754449b27161c",
        "Version": "1"
        }
    }
    ],
    "TargetCapacitySpecification": {
        "TotalTargetCapacity": 2,
        "OnDemandTargetCapacity":1,
        "DefaultTargetCapacityType": "spot"
    }
}

Output:

{
    "FleetId": "fleet-12a34b55-67cd-8ef9-ba9b-9208dEXAMPLE"
}

Example 4: To create an EC2 Fleet that launches Spot Instances using the lowest-price allocation strategy

If the allocation strategy for Spot Instances is not specified, the default allocation strategy, which is lowest-price, is used. The following create-fleet example creates an EC2 Fleet using the lowest-price allocation strategy. The three launch specifications, which override the launch template, have different instance types but the same weighted capacity and subnet. The total target capacity is 2 instances and the default purchasing model is spot. The EC2 Fleet launches 2 Spot Instances using the instance type of the launch specification with the lowest price.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

aws ec2 create-fleet \
